My symptom is that every time I fall asleep I wake right back up - the doctor's theory is that these are "sleep starts" caused by sleep apnea. It keeps me up all night and drives me insane from lack of sleep. The doctor prescribed the CPAP to see if it helps. But I've been on Ambien for months and am having a very hard time stopping its use because it's the only thing that gets me to sleep. And the CPAP machine just freaks me out and I find it hard to sleep with a mask on my face. Any advice?

Thanks I need all the help I can get
